    Sign up to the Spring 23-24 Primary RE Networks

    by Hannah Richardson -

    These sessions are designed to enable RE managers to explore, share and develop good practice in RE in their schools. The sessions will focus on helping other staff to understand the cycle of enquiry, know the range of concepts in the Living Difference IV syllabus, create and amend planning for RE and help understand assessment issues across the school.

    Sessions will cover issues according to the needs of the participants, such as:

    • Supporting other staff in school – what is Hampshire RE using Living Difference IV about? 
    • Developing schemes of work for RE within a developing, integrated curriculum using the golden threads and an understanding of Abrahamic and Dharmic religions. 
    • RE through cross curricular learning. 
    • Developing thinking skills in RE, assessing RE and RE's contribution to pupils' SMSC development. 

    Applicants are expected to attend one meeting each term for one academic year. It is useful if delegates bring their own planning and RE work to the sessions. The meetings will be held within a local primary phase school. The host school will receive one free place at the meetings.
